Four Australian riders will be traversing 7,000km across pan India to capture stories of children and highlight the challenges they face in everyday life, depriving them of their rights.
Working in collaboration with CRY – Child Rights and You, the bikers, Cameron Perry, Scott Grills, Ben Butcher and Taylor Hogan have begun the ‘Ride for Rights – An Indian Odyssey’ from Delhi on four Royal Enfield Himalayans. As they journey across several states, including Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Odisha, Uttarakhand and then return to Delhi, they will film a documentary on the challenges faced by children in India during their visits to various CRY projects around the country. They will also create awareness about the issues and raise funds for the cause. The ride is expected to be completed in a span of 45 days.
About the ride, Soha Moitra, Regional Director, North, CRY, said, “To see these passionate young men wanting to make a difference in the lives of children in India is heart-warming. We are as excited to see the stories of children through their lens and are glad to be able to be a part of their incredible journey. This goes to show how one can channelize their passion to work for bringing about a change, and is sure to inspire millions of people in India to do their bit for upholding our children’s rights.”
